SeaWorld Orlando Returns Bottlenose Dolphin after Months of Care

Animal rescue teams recently returned an adult male Bottlenose Dolphin to the Melbourne Beach area. The dolphin was rescued nearly five months ago, and was found to be suffering from a respiratory disease as well as being dangerously thin. He was successfully treated for his conditions, gained more than 140 pounds during his stay at SeaWorld, and was monitored 24 hours a day. He was eventually deemed healthy enough for release back into his natural habitat. He was fitted with a radio tag so that SeaWorld could monitor his progress and then released.
